Story

A year ago, a swat team broke down the door of a home in downtown St. Paul and found eight Molotov cocktails inside.

Two young activists from Texas were charged with making the firebombs, and word spread quickly among their group that there was an informant in their midst. But who and why?

My Way or the FBI Way won the Best Documentary: Gold Award in the 2009 Third Coast / Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. The story was edited by Nancy Updike.
